Question about Whirlpool TEDX640PQ Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer stopped drying out of the blue. It only blows cold air. I cleaned out the lint screen and the all the way down with a brush. I also checked the hoses in the back and they are not clogged or kinked. How do I check inside the unit to see if there is a clog elsewhere? Do I need to remove the back of the dryer to check?

Unplug it and remove the back. I suspect number 6 to be your problem. The thermal limit is not blown because the dryer is still running so I think it could be the high limit. Of course your heater could be bad also. They get brittle and break over time.My dryer stopped drying out of the blue.  It only - themobilian_79.jpg
Number 5 is the thermal limit. since the dryer runs you can rule that out. Number one is gonna be the problem IF you have figured out you have a good heaterMy dryer stopped drying out of the blue.  It only - themobilian_81.jpgthemobilian_81.jpg

Clothes get caught


Instructions

1

Remove the lint screen from the GE electric clothes dryer.
2

Roll the lint from the screen with your hand. If the lint screen is clogged with fabric softener, fill a sink with hot water and add 1 to 2 tsp. dish soap.

3

Scrub the lint screen with a soft-bristle brush and soapy water. Rinse the lint screen thoroughly and shake off any excess water. Set the lint screen aside to air dry while you clean the dryer exterior.
4

Dampen a cloth with warm water and wring it out. Wipe over the GE electric dryer exterior to remove any lint, dust or product residue. If the dryer is very dirty, dip the cloth in the soapy water and wipe away any spots.
5

Wipe the GE clothes dryer with a towel to dry. Replace the lint screen when it's completely dry.

Our dryer stopped heating so we changed element and cutoff kit, worked for 2 loads and quit, again changed cutoff kit and worked for 15 minutes and stopped heating again, what are we not doing right?


The cutoff is there to trip if too much heat builds up around the heating element. The most common reason for this is plugged venting. But it has to do with poor air flow for sure.

- Check to make sure your lint screen is clean and nothing is fallen down the lint filter chute

- Briefly run the dryer without the vent connected and feel the air coming out the back of the dryer, it should feel like good air flow, now connect it again and feel the air where it comes out of your home, it should feel about the same strength.

- To clean the vent, you can use a long brush, a vacuum or even a leaf blower to try and clear the lint. (blow from inside out or you may make a mess inside)

Whirlpool modle number LER7646AWO serial number MD1848149 dryer blows out cold air only it started by taking to long to dry clothing then it started to only blow cold air. Eveything else seems to work fine


if it was taking to long to dry that's a sign that you need a clean out on your dryer,you should have this done once a year so you don't have a fire.there is a thermal fuse that will pop if the dryer runs to hot probably from a lint buildup in the vent line or the lint filter duct,when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?alot of people don't even know they should have the dryer cleaned out,unplug the dryer,take out the lint filter and remove the 2 screws on top where you pulled the filter out.now remove the vent line from the back of dryer and take off the back panel.on the left side you'll see the duct that the lint filter slides into,take the four screws out that hold the duct in place,on some dryers you can remove the duct to clean it and some you can pull it out from the bottom and move it to the right enough to get a vac nozzle into it,if the lint is packed in the bottom use a screw driver to scrape and lossen the pile and remove the big stuff by hand and then vac the rest,also vac the grate on the wall of the dryer half way up the duct and if you have a dryer brush stick it down where the filter goes to clean the duct out good,put the duct back and to the right of it and like 4 inches up from the floor you'll see the white thermal fuse part 3392519,check that with your meter to make sure that's the problem and most of the time it is this,if that's good read out the heater and the termostats to see what part is bad and make sure you have 240 volts going to heater if parts check good,if it was the thermal fuse take the front panel off of dryer by popping the top up with a screw driver and remove the 2 5/16 screws on the inside front panel,disconnect your door switch wires and pull the front panel up to remove it,vac out the inside of dryer,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow the lint off the motor and blow the lint from the back forwards so you don't have to pull the drum,put that back together,now if you have a long vent line blow it out with a leaf blower,sart the dryer,go outside and make sure the flapper is blowing open all the way and you should be all set,clean it out once a year so this doesn't happen again

Model DLE7177RM, takes about 3 hours to dry a load of clothes. Dryer is NOT overloaded.


Does the dryer heat up or is it just cool air drying the clothes ? If it does actually dry the clothes eventually then it sounds like it is heating up. First thing to check would be exhaust hose. Is warm air blowing out of it ? If warm you got heat. If cool then your heating element isn't working. It should be fairly strong current of very warm air. If weak but warm, then somewhere between lint filter and end of hose you have a blockage caused by lint buildup or hose is bent and blocking air flow. Check hose first. You can disassemble lint trap and go beyond the lint screen into metal duct within dryer and clean with a long brush and vacuum. You can also disconnect exhaust duct flexible hose at back of dryer and work through metal duct from that end too. If you notice increased air flow then it should solve problem,

Bosch Nexxt 800 series dryer E01 error


My wife has a Bosch Premium dryer that had drying problems. The lint filter would get cleaned but the machine still did not operate correctly, as you explained above. Her machine was made in 2005 and the lint screen, the plastic slotted unit in front of the lint filter was the problem. It gets clogged up with hair/lint that never makes it to the filter. I tried a shop vac to vacuum it but the problem was still there. Get a pistol cleaning kit for a 22 cal gun. Pull the lint filter out & then take the pistol rod and insert it from the drum side into each slot and pull out the tons of lint. Pull the lint off the rod when done and take a flame to burn the rest off as the rod is a brass brush with small wires on it.

Conia CCD4501 cloths dryer not blowing hot air anymore


If you can turn it on and have the door open, hold the door switch in and see if you have a glow from the heating element. If not, your element is broken. That is if it is an electric dryer. If it is a gas dryer you need to check the pilot light or the thermo sensor.

you need a dryer vent brush first,bought at home depot cheap,and clean the entire vent to the house,then clean where the vent hooks up to the machine,if your filter is where your door is pull out the filter and stick the brush in there and pull out lint,also use your vacume,remember you let some lint out when you let the hose blow out but theres a lot more there to clean,and also unplug your machine as you do this,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

Try cleaning out the the vent tube. Sometimes lint gets caught up in there over time. Hope this helps.
